Explore Hong Kong’s coolest neighbourhood
Sham Shui Po, one of the oldest districts in Hong Kong known for its textiles industry, has recently gained a newfound ‘cool’ status, reinvigorated by its young creative residents. The district has transformed as one of the hippest neighbourhoods in the city but still kept its traditional street-vendors, historical buildings, and over half a century old Michelin recommended eateries like Kung Wo Tofu Factory and Lau Sum Kee Noodle. Walk a few blocks, and you’ll be greeted by contemporary cafes and creative hubs where patrons can enjoy a good cup of coffee while immersing in artworks by up and coming local artists. The neighbourhood’s fabric shops are famous for local designers and even international designers like Versace and Calvin Klein who frequent the place looking for textile and design inspiration.
The district is also known for its treasure trove of eateries offering affordable street eats and Michelin recommended bites. Aside from fashion finds, the neighbourhood is a shopping mecca to bargain hunt for electronics, vintage accessories, and nostalgic toys. And though it’s currently attracting a hip, young crowd, its newer residents have fostered a sense of community which not only injects new energy to the neighbourhood but also promotes the district’s historical legacy. It is easy to get to and from Sham Shui Po via public buses and taxis that run through the district, but the best way is by MTR as the Sham Shui Po MTR station is right in the centre of the neighbourhood.
